‘There is no radical Islam – Islam is itself radical’

“There is no radical Islam. Islam is radical,” stated the rabbi. “It’s true that there are Arabs who want to live in peace, but the moment that we give them something, we provide a tail wind for the radicals. Because Islam is a radical cultural movement that is not prepared to accept the fact that we exist.”

“As long as Islam doesn’t recognize the fact that it is a branch religion of Judaism, it will remain radical.”

    What kind of branch?

    • Alain

      A terminally ill branch.

      Mutant, badly diseased branch. Needs to be pruned off.

    The rabbi is correct, but I am not so sure about Islam being a branch of Judaism. Actually the Muslims stole from Judaism and Christianity while at the same time changing the texts. Mohammed was illiterate, or at least whoever carried out the theft of scriptures from Judaism and Christianity at the time, so what was recorded in Islam is a hodgepodge of both Judaism and Christianity. I agree that it was more changing and deforming Jewish texts (Torah), and when the Jews rejected the Muslim version (that Mohammed was a prophet), the Muslims murdered them, enslaved their wives and daughters and became the first virulent anti-Semites.

      Branch is the wrong word. Offshoot would be more accurate. Rumor has it (well, according to an Iranian Jew I do business with) that Jews were hired to write the initial “moderate” chapters of the Koran.

        ” …Jews were hired to write the initial “moderate” chapters of the Koran.”
        Oh, how hilarious if that were true. 😀

      And Allah also manged to get where semen is manufactured in the body wrong. Odd for the Almighty Allah (sic) to screw up like that.
